Japan’s endeavor to build upwards has lead to influences far and wide throughout the country, making Tokyo only one spot for world record tower phenomena. Here are five towers and skyscraper buildings to visit for Japan’s world record observation spots!
About an hour south of Shinjuku, on the Shonan Coast, sits Enoshima Island. It is a chunk of rock rising out of the waters of Sagami Bay, sitting less than a kilometer offshore from the volcanic sand beaches of the mainland. Immortalized in one of Hokusai’s Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji, the island has lured Japanese and foreign visitors for more than 1500 years by offering a look at the past while staying relevant as a great modern travel destination.
Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building Observatory offers one feature that is definitely different from any other observatories.
Many of you may already have heard of these observatories as the tourist attractions in Japan, situated on the 45th floor of Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building (202m/662ft above the ground) where you can enjoy the panoramic view of Tokyo.
